If travelling eastwards from Bodmin take the A30 towards Launceston for about seven miles and take the right turn across the dual carriageway signposted Mount, Warleggan, St. Neot and Colliford Lake .......

After about 2 ½  miles, just before the fourth cattle grid, there is a right turn to Mount and Warleggan. Do not take this turn, but continue straight on over the cattle grid and our entrance is the first turning on the left about 100 yards further on.

Coming from Plymouth on the A38, make your way to St. Neot by turning right off the A38 after passing Liskeard, and following the signs to St. Neot.

The Church and the Pub should be on your right; if not - turn around! Continue on through the village, passing the village shop on your left. Go up the hill out of the village and after about 400 yards fork right at the first cattle grid, signposted to Colliford Lake. Follow this road and the signs to Colliford Lake for about 2 ½ miles, passing a right turn signposted to Colliford Dam. Do not take this turn but continue straight on and after about 400 yards take the second entrance on the right. You may think that you are in the middle of nowhere, but have faith - you will arrive!
